About the Master Programme Philosophy, Politics, and Economics

Unlike other Master programmes in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, the focus in Witten is on the sound academic analysis of real-life problems in an increasingly interconnected world. The challenges facing modern society transcend academic disciplines as well as national boundaries. The problem scenarios we observe today are undisciplined in this sense, and therefore require consistently interdisciplinary approaches.

In the highly complex society of the 21st century, it will need people with a generalistic background in economics, politics and philosophy to offer sustainable solutions for the future. The Master PPE in Witten is a tailor-made programme for any career in leading positions at the interface of politics, economics and (civil) society.

The Master programme Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Witten/Herdecke University offers cutting-edge education at the intersection of the social sciences and philosophy. It addresses the challenges of the 21st century in a globalized world. Our graduates find career prospects in a range of political and social fields, NGOs, management, further education, personnel and organisation development, economic and political consulting.

About Witten Herdecke University

Witten/Herdecke University (UW/H) was founded and state recognized in 1983 and ever since has been a pioneer among Germany’s higher education institutions. Over a period of 30 years, we introduced significant innovations in research and teaching. As a model university we stand for dynamic reforms of the traditional alma mater and the pursuit of a humanistic educational concept adapted to the challenges of our modern knowledge society.

In adherence to Humboldt’s educational ideals we perceive ourselves as an entrepreneurial university and strive to integrate research and student education, provision of scientific services, practical application and social responsibility. Theory-based and practice-oriented teaching at UW/H is always associated with the acquisition of subject-related, methodical, social and cultural competences, value orientation and personal growth.
